Step On Out!

Taking a step out of my comfort zone. I love this type of challenge! Every now and again you can find yourself in a bit of a rut. You get in your 'safe' spot and just sort of coast through it. Thanks to Sharon this week we are all going to take a little detour. Are you ready? We are at ssnotime102 for this one if you are uploading to SCS.

Where do I begin? First I pulled out some of my favorite Crate Paper. Ok....not quite out of my comfort zone. I've really never met a piece of Crate that I didn't LOVE! Next up, Papertrey....? Yeah, yeah, I know....more that I LOVE! So far I'm sure your scratching your head wondering when I'm going to actually follow this weeks challenge. Well, take a peek.....
Masculine. That's a place I don't often go. I'm really not sure why I don't do that very often. One reason pops to mind....no ribbon! As in no big whoppin' bows! I live in a house full of boys so I will take any opportunity to slap a bit of ribbon on something and usually the only one is a card!
Take a closer look at the stars.....
I used Stampin Up's new silver paint. Being as impatient as I am I decided to dry it with my heat gun. I really love the way it sort of bubbles up. It was perfect for this. Don't you love it when something works out that way. ;)
Ok....now check out the rest of the team.....
I will post you all soon. Hope you have a good one! :)

Fabulous silver stars, Jen! Love this design! (And I'm laughing at your "all boys in the house" reference and how you'll slap a bow on anything... I'm picturing your house with bows tied around anything that doesn't move! I'd probably be the same way if I had boys, too!) :)
